When is the best time to visit

The Costa Vicentina coastline is known for its wonderful weather most of the year, blessed by a sort of micro-climate where sunny days and clear blue skies are abundant. And being a property sitting 23 minuts away from the coast, the Herdade has the best of the Alentejo breeze and heat mixed with the colorful clean days of the coastline.

And even so, where the Winter is a smooth yet chilly time of the year, Spring and Summer are largely the best seasons to visit. Starting from early May to late September, whatever the time you choose you’ll get the best of the Portuguese weather, landscapes and culture all together.
